    Haven't had a problem yet.

    Everything has worked great for me so far and I've had it for about a year. The backups work and the router works.

    Great router, cosmetically my wife approves

    I bought this to extend my network. FiOS router was in the basement and my wife was complaining about slow internet and her iPad2 dropping signal all of the time.

    I plugged in the router to the data port in a upstairs bedroom. Make sure to choose 'create network' using the same SSID, security settings, and password. It's fast. I knew it was going to be better but was surprised on the difference it made. I set up Time Machine on my MBP. It all worked seamlessly with very little set up.

    Bonus: This is cosmetically the best looking router. My wife approves and it almost could pass as some sort of white vase or canister. Now I don't have to hide in some cabinet.

    UGH-MAY-ZING!!!!!

    I honestly couldn't believe how fast my internet became after purchasing the Airport Time Capsule and then it looks so sleek and beautiful in design sitting in my living room waiting for me to store data. I absolutely love it.

    Best backup decide!!

    Had the previous version of the time capsule, upgraded to this model and never looked back!! Love this and love how seamlessly it connects with my Mac. Set it up and forget it’s there. Every once in a while MacBook will remind me I need to connect my power cord and leave the MacBook open to backup. Love it reminds me to backup if it’s been too long otherwise set it up and you’ll forget it’s even there!!

    Best router for Apple products! (I am addicted to buying routers).

    I bought a Linksys AC2200 model ea8300 with it's try-band 2.2 Gbit mumimo technology etc. It came with a free Linksys modem. Well its going back. I own a premium Asus router, Nighthawk (Netgear), TP-Link's Alfred, and about 3-4 other (premium) routers. Every time I go back to my AirPort Extreme 2TB I bought last fall. It's the fastest, most reliable, and works the best with my apple products. I recently bought an Airport Express because I heard Apple wasn't going to make them anymore. I plugged that in as an "extender" on my 3rd floor and BAM now those slow/spotty areas I used to have are GONE. Apple is the biggest company in the world for a reason. Their products are the best. I keep looking for more "security" but its all JUNK on the other big name routers. I have tried Pfsense and if you wanted a really good firewall thats all you need (just the software). I use Little Snitch once in a white. But again these AirPort Extreme;s are AWESOME!

    Great

    Personally, I got my mac and AirPort because my grandfather didn't know how to use it. I never really knew what the AirPort was either. But I had some trouble at first but otherwise, I love it.

    Easy setup - and reliable

    I have used Apples Time Capsule for now many years in an extended network. Wanted to replace my first model recently, even if it still works flawlessly. But I needed a bigger harddrive, and replacing the capsule was no sweat at all. Hope that Apple will continue to develop and produce capsules and routers.

    Perfection in every aspect

    I have virgin fibre optic internet service and used to use their super hub 2. Speed was never reaching the limit I'm paying for 200MB/s unless connect via Ethernet. Also wifi signal kept dropping at least once every two days. Also the signal never reached the entire house. A year ago I went for a new MacBook and bought this baby just to use it as a back up drive and thinking the wifi signal would not be different , never been so delighted to be wrong. This router solved all the aforementioned problems and now my wifi connection is perfect : reaching maximum speed I pay for (when checked with Speedtest app or website) and stays max even if far from the router. A year down the line and I have not had a single occasions of dropping signals!!! The signal is strong anywhere in the house and the backup function for the MacBook is a breeze ( runs in the background without affecting the wifi signal in anyway)

    If you are thinking about a new router/ hub with additional back up feature then look no further. Worth every penny and money well spent!!

    P.S the same poor performance noticed with Virgin Superhub 3 when recently upgraded my speed to 300Mb, I now believe these hubs supplied by your ISP is designed in a way to limit the service you get but customers never get informed about this !!!

    Great product

    As all Apple products, this one is excellent. It's lightning fast due to the latest 802.11 ac speed. I've got an IPad Air and a MacBook Air both with ac and I can tell the difference. I had a Linksys EA2700 before which was a good product too, but didn't have the range or speed. The 2TB storage is also an excellent feature to back up the 3 Macs we have in the house.

    Best money spent

    I wanted to have an automated backup system for both my Mac and my brother's Mac. And I also wanted something that will help our internet as we are going to have our internet re-done in my home. I needed something to handle a lot of devices and this will do the trick. I absolutely love Apple and their products. I hear a lot of people say, "Once you go Mac, you never go back," and I absolutely DO NOT want to go back to Microsoft. It would be nice if Microsoft had something like this, oh wait, they probably don't have the power to make one since all their products catch viruses.

    Fabulous buy

    I bought an Airport Time Capsule 2 TB after a nightmare with Western Digital hard drive ( avoid at all cost as they are bad news ) so I did what I should have done in the first place is to bug an Apple product, they are reliable very well made and designed easy set up 5 minutes and that's it I do recommend don't buy anything else as the cheapest is always the most expensive and the best one( Apple ) but they are expensive but you buy quality

    Shorter range than previous generation

    I bought a new Airport time 2TB capsule to replace my last 2TB time capsule. After installation (thank you apple help) we noticed the retransmitted range was shorter. Don't know why, just an observation, nothing else changed in the house but the router.

    Excellent thus far.

    I bought an AirPort Extreme which I could not get to work properly, I returned it and had an Apple Store set this up for me and it has so far worked faultlessly.

    A must have

    What can I say. This device delivers - not surprised - I have recently become an Apple convert.

    Left the windows world behind - for good.

    Everything Apple designs is done with the user in mind.

    This device is no different. Set up was easy and backing up my computer is no longer a thought - it's automatic and flawless.

    Amazing range and speed increase over old Airport X

    I purchased the 3TB version ahead of purchasing my new Mac Pro this month. I wasn't expecting such a range and speed boost as I'm still only using the "n" technology in my devices. The third story of my home was always a slow connection and was an issue with streaming TV content through my Apple TV. Now I get full strength and over 20 Meg's per second instead of 3-4. Great Job Jony and team ID!

    Lots of problems

    Terrible. The Wifi connection would always drop out.

    I'm now just using it for back-up, connected directly to my iMac, but suspect because the product is a couple of years old now, that its probably close to dying.

    Its simply another branded router in Apple casing. Apple really needs to improve in this area.

    Once, when you purchased an Apple product - "It just worked"

    Now..... ???

    3TB in fact

    well, like a lot of other people I thought I would be able to use this for storage. It's rubbish, really - the only benefit I get from it is being able to print wirelessly. Big, fat, expensive near albatross. Silly me for getting one. Wake up, Apple - we want control over our own stuff.

    Dead in a month

    It's quite hard to trust this as a back up device, when it's dead within a month.
    "Internal disc needs repair".

    Reach is ok, but not fantastic.
    I so regret..........

    Cannot recommend as a router

    Since I replaced my obsolete Netgear router with a Time Capsule, I systematically experience that my devices are kicked out from the network. May be TC is a nice device for backups but as a router for a WiFi network it is a disapointment.

    All-in-one hard to use

    I bought this AirPort Time Capsule back in 3 August, and it took me almost 18 hours of tinkering before it finally works. It has good wifi, but it keeps losing my backups every 2 weeks or so even if the backup drive isn't full. And I am always scared that it is overheating (how long will it last in this condition?). The good thing is that now my iOS devices can finally AirPrint using my non-AirPrint HP printer.
